Yes!!! FINALLY an LS Center!! WOOHOO!!

Hi Eric,

It's been a long time coming, hasn't it? :D

Quote
Will these be available only in kit form? Or will buying a ready built (plug & play) speaker be an option??

Danny i have been assuming that this will also be the perfect speaker for the OB/7. Am i correct?

Really? I might be interested if the price is right.


How about $35 each?

I have to stick with selling them only as kits so I don't compete with any of the companies that I do design work for.

But I think Ruben will accommodate you your assembly needs.

Yes, it would.

Given proper clearance, the modified OB-7 Plus would be the "ideal" OB-7 CC, wouldn't it?

Assuming a rear ported LS Center, what would you recommend as the optimal distance from the wall behind?

If there wasn't the option of pulling the CC out into the room and it had to be placed within a few inches of the wall behind, would you recommend the N3S as a viable alternative for the OB-7's?

Thanks!

Ruben

Is this the box for the new center? Is it going to be OB for the center drivers? Looks like a giant X-Voce ...

No, that's the OB-7 Plus, Minus the Plus. :green:

It's known as the "OB-7 Center".

I posted it in response to Danny's answer to Nick about pairing the LS Center with OB-7's.

Sorry for the confusion.

Actually Scott, that IS a bigger/badder version of the X-Voce! But instead of the Encore tweeter, it uses the BG Neo3. :thumb:

Here's the OB-7 Plus product page.

Delete the subwoofer section and you get the "OB-7 Center."

If you have OB-7's as left and right mains, and you have room to pull the center channel a good distance out from the wall then this version of the OB-7 would be really ideal.

My Voce isn't really far out but still a decent amount. I've found the back reflection to be extremely spot on for imaging with the center of my TV. I LOVE the OB sound so maybe an OB7-C would be a better match to my Mini's  :scratch:

The minute you responded with the idea of a new center I shot you an email offering to build the test enclosure. Check your email! :green:

As soon as I get the dimensions from Danny, I'll get started. :thumb:

Ruben

Have you started yet?  :icon_lol:

How does this work btw?  Does Danny send you detailed cabinet plans or just rough dimensions?

Thanks
Randy

Yes, Sir. I already have some rough sketches drawn up.

Your LS-9's have the rectangle "floating" bases don't they?

Welcome to AC! :D
